I only interviewed him one time when we were a co-sponsor of WinHEC. He rocked in his chair the whole time with Carl Stork sitting nearby.
I asked a bunch of questions he pretty much dismissed or answered by pouring out a gallon of meaningless techno-speak. I figured it must be a polite technique or habit he developed from a bazillion boring interviews.
Somewhere in there I got some flake of a scoop about WinPad (big deal it never shipped!) And he was gone.
Whatever wrongs you may or may not have done in antitrust, you are making up for them in spades now. Go for it, Bill!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
